SFL 260 Sections 1 Dr. E. Jeffrey Hill Exam 2 (Sample Math Problems) 80. Jeremy borrows $12,000 to buy a used mini-van for his family (a wife with three children). The annual interest rate of the car loan is 5.75%. It is a 60-month loan. The bank tells him that his monthly payment (at the end of each month) is $________. He wants to pay off the loan quicker, so he decides to make a payment of $300 each month (starting at the end of the first month). How long will it now take Jeremy to pay off the loan (in months)? PV = 12000 I = 5.75/12 N= 60 PMT = ? <230.60> Monthly Payment = 230.60 PV = 12000 I = 5.75/12 N= ? 44.5127 PMT =<300.00> [email protected]$300/mo = 44.5127 81. Christina needs a late-model used car for her family. She has an excellent credit rating of 789. What would be the monthly payment on a simple interest auto loan of $19,500 over a four year period assuming an annual interest rate of 4.9%? Assume an annuity due (payment at the beginning of the month or in other words “annuity due”). Begin Mode PV = 19500 I = 4.9/12 N= 12*4 PMTad = ? <446.37> Monthly payment = $446.37 82.

Now, what would Christina’s monthly payment be for the same auto loan with an annual interest rate of 8.9%? (Also, annuity due). How much interest would she pay over the four year period? Begin Mode PV = 19500 I = 8.9/12 N= 12*4 PMTad = ? <480.77> Monthly payment = $480.77 Interest = 23,076.896payments – 19500 principal = 3576.96 interest paid 1

83. James is in love with Abby. Before proposing, he bought a beautiful $3,600 diamond engagement ring and paid for it with his high-interest Visa card. If the minimum payment is $60 per month and James only pays the minimum each month, how many months will it take to pay off his $3,600 credit card (the company charges 19% APR)? How much interest will James pay on this loan? PV = 3600 I = 19/12 PMT = <60> N = 190.7 Months 190.7 (months) * 60 (monthly payment) = 11442 (total payments) – 3600 (principal) = $7842 (interest payments) 84.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
